Why Fair

Because it supports the workers who build our gear.

The surf industry doesn’t like talking about what goes on behind the scenes. There’s a simple reason for that: it’s a business that often puts its own profit ahead of the welfare of workers and their communities. But by choosing Fair Trade, we can help change things for the better while ensuring that the people who make our gear are treated with the respect they deserve.

All of our boardshorts and bikinis are made in Fair Trade Certified™ facilities.

The Point is Forever

We’re proud to announce that the iconic headland at Punta de Lobos has been preserved forever. Known as the Mirador, the threatened property at the tip of the point has now been purchased and transferred to the locally based Fundación Punta de Lobos. But with an ongoing vision for the future, the Fundación is still in need of support.
